CALL FOR PAPERS - Deadline: June 30th
	
The 7th TELRI Seminar
"Information in Corpora"
	
Dubrovnik: September 26-28
	
Organiser: TELRI Association
Centre for Corpus Linguistics, University of Birmingham
Local organiser: Institute of Linguistics, Faculty of Philosopy, 
		 University of Zagreb
	
We invite the submission of papers for the forthcoming 7th TELRI
seminar, to be held in picturesque Dubrovnik from 26-28 September 2002
in the International Centre of Croatian Universities.
	
'Information in Corpora' can be understood to mean a variety of
things. We are interested in finding out what words and phrases mean,
what texts are about and what it means to translate them into a
different language.
	
Corpus linguistics is committed to automatic analysis. It uses
categorical information, but wants to make sure that the categories it
works with are not in conflict with corpus evidence. It deals with
statistical significance, but is aware that our aim must be to match
it to semantic relevance, as perceived by language users.
	
If meanings are a priority for corpus linguists, they know they have
to find them in the forms from which they cannot be separated. Pattern
recognition is a vital part of extracting formal information from
corpora. Identifying, in parallel corpora, translation units, those
units of meaning that are translated as a whole, and aligning them
with their target language equivalents refers to a different kind of
information.
	
We invite papers on corpus-based/corpus-driven research including, but
not limited to the following areas:
* the semantics of corpus linguistics
* corpus software
* pattern and meaning
* working with parallel corpora
* translation equivalence
* corpus-driven lexicography
* corpus and language teaching
	
A detailed abstract of the proposed paper, not exceeding 400 words,
should be sent in electronic form to Louise Matty by June 30, 2002 to
the following e-mail address: MattyLRIhhs.bham.ac.uk
	
All papers will be reviewed by the following programme committee:
Frantisek Cermak, Prague, The Czech Republic
Pernilla Danielsson, Birmingham, UK
Ruta Marcinkeviciene, Kaunas, Lithuania
John Sinclair, TWC, Italy
Marko Tadic, Zagreb, Croatia
Wolfgang Teubert, Birmingham, UK
	
Authors will be notified whether their papers are accepted or rejected
by 15 July 2002. The timeslot given for full presentations is 30
minutes (including 10 minutes for discussions).

The registration fee for the conference is EUR 150/75* for academic
partners, and EUR 300/150* for industrial partners. The * refers to
fees for participants from the CEE/NIS. The conference will begin on
Thursday early afternoon and last till Saturday evening. During the
Conference there will be a reception on Thursday evening, an excursion
on Friday late afternoon/evening, and a farewell party on Saturday. On
Sunday morning there will be an optional local excursion.

Accommodation details: Hotel Lero, prices 22.80 USD (turistic tax
incl.) per person per night in double room 30.80 USD (turistic tax
incl.) per person per night in single room.

Please contact us if you have any questions at MattyLRIhhs.bham.ac.uk.

OTHER ASPECTS OF INTEREST
	
Santiago de Cuba, located at some 900 kms from Havana, is Cuba's
second largest city. Its economic, cultural and social importance in
Cuban history is unquestionable. Santiago is also the capital of the
province with the same name. Surrounded by the green mountains of the
Sierra Maestra range and the Caribbean Sea, Santiago is unique in its
geography and beautiful landscape. Its surroundings make the city one
of the most important tourist attractions on the entire island. The
Organizing Committee, in coordination with the city's tourist agencies
